Letters to editor:

RE: 4 views of Adam.

In reading the full review of this book on the Herald crosscurrents site it is clear that 3 of the views on Adam are based on a belief the God used evolution in His creation and that evolution is to be viewed as Biblical and scientific because some Christian scientists and theologians said so. Problems; evolution is the survival of the fittest by bloodshed and death and extinction of the weak. God’s Word the Bible says that Adam’s disobedience caused death, disease, thorns and bloodshed. If God used evolution, creation does not then groan from Adam’s original sin because God would have created death and bloodshed in the first place as part of His “good” creation. Evolution means no original sin; this is a basic doctrine of atheism.

Concerning human genome; good Christians have learned to spout the evolutionary line as part of “fitting in” with the “scientific” community. They had forgotten that in the 90’s a genome researcher said the all women on earth came from one woman. This was quickly changed because the evidence pointed to a real Biblical Eve and we all know that that can’t be true in this modern age. So a new spin had to be put on the genome evidence, so now the party line is that humanity came from a very large group of humanoids that didn’t come from a smaller group, that didn’t come from a very few.

We have to remember that scientists with an atheist/naturalistic worldview have to explain the origin of the world around them without a supernatural cause; that position is very illogical. Christians need to be far more discerning on this issue. We are not left with the unenviable task of deciding which is the most convincing of the 4 views about Adam as the Zondervan review says. But we just have to accept that Jesus really is the Son of God and He knows more that Darwin and his disciples.
